Just tripped in after not visiting for a few months, and find this terribly sad news.

"Jerry would not be happy at all."!

I have been able to download and record shows from 1965, 66,67,68,69,70,82,93, part of 94 all of 95 and 2004. Some shows from other years as well.

(My first dead show was 69, last was 93, in between I've attended about 400 shows, so this is near and dear to my heart)!

If anyone wishes to have them, I will be happy to ""trade""", but it will take me some time before I have the time to transfer from CDs back to flacs.

All of my recordings were from flac or shns no lessor mp3 recordings.

Let me know, I'll keep a list of people who want them, postage and disks or HDs will be the only cost, Whatever it cost me for material, it will cost you, I want no profit from this, as JERRY meant it to be.

my email is:

I am in the process of building a house, so right now time is not there to get any of this done, but later, I think we might all be able to trade and together make up for this terribly sad loss. (Sign of the times people)!

Thanks to Archieves for doing what that could, and have for so long.

I sent the following email to the webmaster of and the customer service email of the GD store. I thought I would share this in case others thought that this was a good idea and wanted to do the same. It probably won't make any difference, but it's true, and I wanted them to know that they are losing (a tiny bit) of money.


I am just writing to inform you that I have removed the "So Many Roads" boxed set from my reqeusted gifts list. I am a big fan of the Dead, but I have come to the decision that I will not support the Dead financially due to your decision to deny access to non-commercially released sounboards. This was a hard decision for me to make, as I have wanted the box set for a long time. Please know that I will suffer from the lack of music, as you suffer from the lack of business. I do however, want to commend you on having the courage to make this decision just before the holiday shopping season; you could just have easily done this in January, and you showed some class in risking your seasonal sales. Should you change your minds, and allow the free dissemination of non-commercially released soundboards, I will be the first in line to buy the So Many Roads boxed set.

Yours truly,
